Ca' Leonessa is a recently (2010) restored luxury first floor two double bedroom/ two bathroom apartment located in Dorsoduro in the heart of Venice. The apartment overlooks a quiet canal and a famous bridge (the Ponte dei Pugni) and the Campo San Barnaba (which featured as did the exterior of the apartment in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade). It is a short walk from the bus and railway stations. Due to its superb location all the sites of Venice are either within walking distance or a couple of stops on the vaporetto (water bus).

The apartment has been sympathetically restored using high quality traditional Venetian materials and local craftsmen. In the furnishing of the apartment the prime consideration has been to create a comfortable and welcoming oasis for you after a busy days sight seeing in magical Venice.

The living room (which overlooks the canal and which gives a great vantage point to view the Campo San Barnaba) features two Natuzzi sofa's (one double sofa bed) a Linn sound system and Sony HD television with DVD/CD player and Sky channels.

Both bedrooms are bright and airy with comfortable beds and have plenty of hanging/storage space in the bespoke wardrobes. One bedroom has a luxuriously appointed double bed with fine linens and traditional Venetian fabrics. The second bedroom has two single beds again with beautiful traditional Venetian fabrics.

Both bathrooms are fully tiled with local tiles in earthy/neutral tones. There are power showers in both.

The kitchen has been hand built and features a dining area which seats 6 people comfortably. It is fully equipped and will give you an opportunity to create some wonderful meals having spent the morning at the famous fish market (la pescaria) and the equally renowned grocery barge that is located on the canal just across the bridge in front of the house. If the culinary arts are not for you then you are in the heart of Dorsoduro which has some of Venice's finest restaurants.

Among the many other amenities on offer we have provided unlimited broadband/wifi; Wii system with a selection of games/activities; a collection of DVD's, CD's and books (including various cook books and guide books on Venice).

Our apartment is great for all groups from parents with children, groups of friends or a romantic hideaway for

a couple.

Included with your stay are bed linen and bath towels, all utilities, internet use and weekly cleaning as well as final cleaning on your departure. Added extras include electrical adaptors (UK and USA); umbrellas; guidebooks; maps and rain boots.

About this location

The Veneto region

Your first glimpse of Venice , the pearl of the Adriatic, is of a magnificent vision of a city rising from the waters of the lagoon. The unique light has fascinated artists and travellers for centuries. As perhaps the greatest trading state Venice has absorbed different cultures like no other City. Its unrivalled blend of cultures is evidenced in the truly magnificent array of architectural styles from Byzantine through to Renaissance elegance and even the neo Fascist architecture of the railway station.

The Grand Canal runs through the centre of the city with its numerous smaller canals and 400 plus bridges link the city and its succession of palazzi.

From the first refugees arriving to the rise of the great Venetian empire of the 13th century and the later Napoleonic invasion, Venice has it all.


By stepping out of the front door of the apartment you enter the heart of this incredible and unique city. The Accademia, Frari and Guggenheim and Punta della Dogana (Francois Pinault collection) art galleries are all within easy walking distance. The Ca ' Rezzonico with its lovely shady garden is literally a minute away. St Marks Square is a short walk away. The immediate area has many of Venice's best restaurants not to mention two of its most distinctive squares with their lively cafes and bars (the Campo San Barnaba and the Campo Santa Margherita). Local fish markets and fruit and vegetable merchants are a short stroll away.

There is a supermarket 2 minutes from the apartment.

"Great stay in Ca Leonessa"

WE stayed in a two bedroom two bathroom apartment in Venice with our two adult children. The apartment is all redone and is very comfortable. The location is wonderful and we walked everywhere. Loved looking out the windows at the canal and having the market right outside our door. Grocery stores are close as are many restaurants and cafe's. We were greeted by a lovely girl who gave us lots of information and helped us arrange a water taxi for our early morning departure several days later. We have already recommended Ca Leonessa to several family and friends.

"Perfect for a family stay"

Stayed here with our family including 4 children/teens aged 9, 12, 13 and 15. The apartment was really comfortable and well equipped. It is close to everything but not too noisy. The kitchen is well set up for self catering and there is a good small supermarket just around the corner. Each morning there is a barge selling fruit and vegetables on the canal just outside the apartment.

There are also lots of extra things that make it a great place for a family to stay including board games and a selection of DVDs for when the kids need some down time.

I highly recommend this apartment
